Information Guides

For complete information about the National Leadership Conference, check out the 2019 NLC Guide and other great information from National FCCLA at http://fcclainc.org/meetings/national-leadership-conference.php. You can also access the Nebraska guide with information on the Nebraska FCCLA special event and hotel information, here: 2019 NLC Welcome Doc for Advisers.

 

Registration

To register for Nebraska Special event and complete State registration for the National Leadership Conference visit NLC Nebraska Event Form.  This is due by 6:00 PM on Friday, April 26.  Payment for the Nebraska special event, and Nebraska registration and gifts must be received by June 15 to avoid late payment fees.

Early Bird registration for National Leadership Conference ends May 1.

The Nebraska FCCLA Association will be assisting with special event reservations.  Advisers, parents and chaperones are expected to refer to the conference schedule and planned events before scheduling sightseeing opportunities. The primary focus of the conference is on youth leadership and personal development.

If a student is attending the conference without a representative from their school or a family member, an Independent Delegate Form must be completed by both the student’s school and the school that will be assuming responsibility for the student while they are at the conference.  This form must be signed by all parties and returned to the State Adviser prior to June 15.

 

Hotel

Nebraska FCCLA has been assigned to the Anaheim Marriott (700 West Convention Way, Anaheim, CA 92802). This hotel is a very short walk (2 minutes and right outside our door!) to the convention center.  The rate for the hotel is $189 per room per night with plus tax.

All STAR Event competitors are REQUIRED to stay at the conference hotel and anyone who stays outside of the room block will incur additional charges from National FCCLA.  The hotel does not provide breakfast for free but does have refrigerators in every room.  There are several food vendors at the hotel.  There are multiple convenience style stores, a Target and pharmacies within blocks of the hotel as well.

If you recall the challenges of checking-in at the Westin in Atlanta last year, a travel agent would have provided great assistance to all chapter advisers, students and the State Adviser. This year, Nebraska FCCLA Board of Directors have decided to utilize a travel agent to book hotel rooms on behalf of the State Association. The Meeting Connection was selected to offer this service to our delegates. They have a long history of supporting Minnesota, Ohio and Washington FCCLA Associations and are very familiar with NLC.

The Meeting Connection will be handling room reservations for each chapter.  When you complete your conference registration through the national system, a hotel reservation form will be automatically emailed to you; DO NOT COMPLETE THIS FORM.  Do NOT contact the hotel directly to set up or pay for reservations!  By doing this we can ensure that we can take care of some issues that may arise in advance for our advisers and coordinate an easier payment process.  In order to complete your reservations, hotel information is required to be entered through the NE Housing Form – Meeting Connection form or via their website at www.fccla.us/nebraska by 6:00 PM on Thursday, April 25.  Payment is due by June 1 for NLC housing to The Meeting Connection.

The room rate listed on the booking form is listed per person which includes lodging, taxes and a $25.00/person processing fee from The Meeting Connection.  Each individual attending the National Leadership Meeting must fill out this form and return to The Meeting Connection. All those registering for NLC as part of the Nebraska delegation must stay in the Anaheim Marriott hotel and must plan to arrive in Anaheim on Friday, June 28; Saturday, June 29 or Sunday, June 30. Schools are no longer able to come into the conference for one night, compete and leave. National FCCLA has implemented this policy beginning at NLC this year, which may only be adjusted with State Adviser approval (ex. Traveling home early for 4-H at the county fair, etc). If advisers have questions or concerns, please email Kristin.

Only those that are registered for the conference are eligible to receive hotel rooms at the discounted rate.  Therefore, if parents or family members are planning on staying in the hotel, they must

to be registered conference attendees.  Not following this policy will mean additional fees from National FCCLA and/or cancellation of hotel rooms.
